Wild Rift Esports will kick off with several smaller, intermittent competitive events from January through March to give viewers a taste of the budding talent and teams in the region. In April, this will transition into eight location-specific tournament circuits, where teams will compete for the title of local champion.
Once local champions have been crowned, they will compete against other local champions at a cross-Southeast Asia level.
”We knew that players were eager and ready for Wild Rift competition. In 2021, we’re focusing on laying the foundations of our long-term commitment to Wild Rift esports in Southeast Asia. We’re looking forward to delivering memorable experiences alongside the region’s top esports organisations over the course of the year.” – Chris Tran, Head of esports at Riot Games Southeast Asia, Taiwan and Hong Kong
